see the fliers that you've -- i guess the samples you have given us. just in looking at the samples, and i know you're just developing your materials i notice that it does repeat a lot that the energy provided by cleanpower sf will be 100% renewable and clean. i think it might be useful when explaining that to mention that -- what the benefit of that is. that the power isn't going to come from power plants that create soot and cause childrens' asthma, and the reasons that many people in the community have for not wanting power plants in their community whether it's in san francisco or across the bay in another community as we saw with the trandzs bay cable. this enables people not to get the power from the power plants and enables the power plants not so much demand for them. i think it might be obviously not in such a complicated long way, but just to point out it's not just that it's clean and from solar and wind and that it's not from soot creating power plants. >> that's a point well taken to make sure we don't lose the opportunity to educate about the benefit

'd like to show. today i took a tour of balboa park station which i use very frequently. balboa park station is a station that 10,000 people a day plus use to go to city college or get to downtown. it's our biggest transit hub outside of the downtown area of san francisco, in the whole bay area region. and it is completely inadequate. it looks like a hub that you would expect to find behind the eastern block -- an eastern block country back in the 1980s. it has not had any real substantial investment in years. i pushed a little bit to get some curb ramps which is the tip of the iceberg of what is actually needed. this is a video i'd like to show of what the conditions are and i hope, colleagues, you can actually take about 15 seconds to look at this. this is what people face every day and it's a very dangerous situation that we have. john, if you could.

that played out behind me. you may just be able to make out a staircase that used to lead to a house where mother, father and 13-year-old daughter lived. only the mother survived. those stories are far too common out here in staten island. >> when is the government coming? >> reporter: it was a desperate cry for help. >> we're going to die, if we get killed with the weather, we're going to die! >> reporter: in staten island, donna pleaded with her senators for more food, gasoline and clothing. >> we are -- >> we got 90-year-old people! >> reporter: this is one of the hardest-hit communities in torqnew york city. thousands still without power, many homeless. 19 people dead, including this father and son, found locked in a final embrace. overwhelmed by a violent surge of water, residents describe a tsunami-like wave as high as 20 feet that devastated entire neighborhoods. >> it was coming in, rushing, like a rapids. it was just coming, it was just curving around that corner and rushing down. >> reporter: the water may be receding, but the frustration on staten island seems to be growing. >>

different. i got to help you this earnings season. i want to offer you a new way to use earnings season. day traders hijack a lot of the thinking. you're not trying to game the giving quarter. it's become so difficult to predict. and often the initial moves aren't even accurate because of the press conference or because something nasty just occurred in the overall market because of europe or something involved in the election. in other words, other than for those who are shorting or going long stocks ahead of the quarter, these earnings reports need a context to make you money. they can't be relied upon anymore because they aren't as predictive of future behaviors as they once were. they are a piece of the puzzle, a part of the mosaic. they are only one of very important parts of what predicts where a stock will go over the intermediate term. it is a teaching show. because i want you to know the metrics i'm using to pick stocks i talk about and recommend here you can follow along at cnbc.com. i want you to listen to these conference calls or read them in the transcripts. give you an opinion
this -- this is your house right here? >> yeah. this is my house. i used to be over there. >> reporter: jux posed against scenes like this that forced the mayor to cancel the marathon. today, we saw them loading in cases of vodka. private party going on in here. and pal lets of water and food. this is a lot of provisions. can't go in this area? but the pictures that truery did not sit well in this city were hundreds of thousands still don't have power, four large diesel generators. how many homes could these things power? >> i don't know. >> reporter: how do you think your neighbors without power would like this thing? >> they'd love it. >> there's children out there who are without blankets, without anything. and then these generators are running. >> reporter: the decision to cancel the marathon came just hours after the mayor publicly defended the idea. >> new york has to show that we are here and that we're going to recover. >> reporter: tonight, on our local station, wabc, the head of the marathon said it was the toughest decision she'd ever made. >> it was time to just, you know, make this d

your tv and see us, it is actually sunday not monday. jon: that's right, we'll be there sunday and you be there too, please. jenna: thanks for joining us, everybody. jon: "america live" starts right now. megyn: fox news alert tempers flaring at hurricane sandy's victims face yet another day of waiting for help as forecasters warn of a possible nor'easter that may hit an already devastated east coast. welcome to "america live," i'm megyn kelly on a busy friday between politics and sandy. nearly 4 million americans spending a fourth day without any power, many of them told they will have to wait for weeks for it to be restored, and it's getting cold here in the northeast. staten island, new york one of the hardest hit communities, people there boiling in anger over what they say has been a slow to nonexistent relief effort in places. more than 80,000 people are in the dark, many are homeless because of situations like the one you see on your screen now, and 19 people have died because of the storm. supplies and patience are running out in new york and new jersey, look at these li
can tell us when we are done what it is. something will repeat 3 times. [applause] okay. which one of you figured it out? yes. >> 49, hum... >> i can see how you would say that, why do you say that? there is 49 of something. okay. did you notice the turns? the spins? how many were there in one piece? yes. no. yes. 9. how many times did we repeat that? how many times? 3. 9 times 3 -- is 27. we did 27 turns but we were going, 1, 2, 1, 1, 2, 1. that's a sophisticated math concept, you were not wrong. i bet you will grow up to be a mathematician. i will give you my address you will have to send me your first paycheck because i taught you this. at this point we would like to thank you very much for coming. if you have any questions. i don't know if we want to open it you will for questions. may be just a few? okay. yes. what's your question? >> how do we get in this program? that is a good question. >> it's an interesting question because the answer with the 3 of us is the same. what i want to point out i look like i might be from india when i talk i sound like i'm from america. my
free public power to the city of san francisco. one of my favorite lines mike just used is this measure is about consolidating from 8 reservoirs to 7. another way to say that is to say this is about draining one of them, the hetch hetchy valley. have other studies said this is feasible? sure, just like tearing down city hall or knocking down the golden gate bridge, that's possible but not feasible. we're not going to spend 3 billion dollars to tear down the hetch hetchy dam. let's not forget, we are also stewards for two dozen cities in the peninsula. over 2 million californians benefit from the foresight of our forefathers almost 100 years ago in building hetch hetchy. while the rest of the state is tying themselves up in knots trying to figure out where to get their water. not only did we have the type of water storage hetch hetchy provides, not only today but in the future, we are in a solid place. and to spend this kind of money, and let's just talk about the $8 million dollars, i think that's one thing we can agree on. this calls for us to spend $8 million do
redevelopment agency using affordable housing money overpaid for parcels purposely so there would be capital build to boulevard. on a personal note i lived in hayes valley and was active in the process of bringing the free ways down and enjoyed the octavia boulevard itself. but where that capital came from wasn't affordable housing money so the true up was a very significant part of returning that favor, if you will. and i'm glad to hear that is no longer contested. that said the number is smaller. we've gone from a 13.$25 million true up to a 9.8. that is a little under $4 million less money going back for those -- early parcel sales which in turn means less revenue to return the affordable housing funding. * but if that's what it takes, then okay. we do have some concern, though, that that number be solid, and my understanding is that these specifications you saw in your presentation will be immemorialized in an m-o-u so there will be greater stability. i do have, if anybody would care on the board, a 2009 memo from office of economic development at the time that the board of su
a shortened week. let's bring in our guests for their take on what went on. with us now, chip dixon, jeff cox, and rick santelli. nice to have you on the program. thanks for joining us. chip, let me begin with you. haven't see you in a little bit. we used to talk long ago when you were at a different firm. welcome back to cnbc. >> thank you. >> you are the director of research discern. what is your research telling you here about where we are in this market and in this cycle for the economy? >> well, it tell us that the housing sector is improving and the residential side. commercial permit activity, which we see, has gone up, it's kind of plateauing. it tells us we're dealing with a lot of uncertainty out there. there's a tremendous amount of pent-up capacity in corporate america if we can just get the right fiscal policies in place. this economy could do well. >> do you think things loosen up after the election when we know who the president will be? >> i think it depends. then we're going to have more clarity on the policies. what we want in place are constructive growth oriented fiscal po
